It was the 70's. His dad was probably high most of the time. Dweezil and Moon Unit Zappa have weirder names and neither of them bothered to change them (Dweezil Zappa even changed his name to Dweezil after finding out that's the legal name his father wanted to give him). I think all parents should give their kids weird names. It either encourages them to live up to the weirdness or pick a name that better suits them later in life.

Lynch's Dune was such a craptastic movie that no one is willing to touch that project with a ten foot pole.
They already remade Dune. It was a well received mini-series that even managed to spawn another mini-series based on "Children of Dune". Happened like 12 years ago.
